Eva passed her medical exams with flying colors with all 3 Chinese doctors. They were quick and efficient, which was good since the medical clinic filled up with many waiting families. It was total chaos! Thankfully our guides from AWAA are very experienced and knew to go early. We were the first group to arrive.
Guangzhou is a beautiful modern city in south China. It is also the location for the US Consulate, so all US adoptions are processed here. Bad News: More Paperwork! Good News: It’s a great place to spend some time while waiting for Eva’s US Passport and the final stage in the on-site adoption process.
Today was a beautiful day to enjoy the outdoors. We visited shops located around the White Swan Hotel and enjoyed interacting with the people, shopping, and eating outside. Eva demonstrates a real love for the outdoors and seemed perfectly content to be carried all around by her Daddy. It was a special day as everyone around seemed to be soaking up the sunshine.
Eva continues to get to know us. We are having a lot of fun together, but continue to need more sleep as she wakes up throughout the night and during naptime. We are definitely tired. Treva is fighting a cold and not feeling her best, but all in all, we are well and deeply grateful for this sweet baby girl. Thank you for your prayers on our behalf and the supportive emails, FB posts, etc. We hope you enjoy today’s photos.
